Stone Fire Wildfire
News – 8/29/2018

THIS WILL BE THE LAST UPDATE FOR THE STONE FIRE from NorCal Team 2.
Additional updates will be posted only if conditions change, and can be found at
inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6148 or on Facebook @ModocNF.

NorCal Team 2 will transfer command of the Stone Fire to a Type 3 Modoc National Forest organization at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 30, 2018.

The Stone Fire remains at 39,387 acres and is 100% contained. 696 resources are assigned to the fire, including three helicopters.

Mop up and patrol will continue today. Crews are anticipating a shift back into warmer, breezier conditions, and they will look carefully for any hot spots or snags that begin to show activity. Green islands of vegetation within the fire perimeter are continuing to ignite and burn, and residents and motorists should expect to see smoke within the fire perimeter for the next few days. The fire will be staffed into the foreseeable future to ensure that lines remain secure.
